NEW MARKETS TAX CREDIT ADVISORY

With deep expertise in the federal and state New Markets Tax Credit programs, our firm focuses on helping clients find “gap” financing for their capital projects that are growth and community orientated. We help our clients get their projects 100% financed, which are usually construction based and located in low-income communities. HGC has  a history of working with manufacturing businesses, healthcare companies, community centers, childcare centers, mixed-use real estate developments, charter schools, etc.


By positioning our clients to take advantage of federal and state NMTC programs we advise them on qualifying their business within program guidelines, structuring their transaction, identifying NMTC allocation and guiding them through the entire deal life cycle.


Our industry experience allows us to guide our clients through this lucrative, federal incentive program and strategically select the right institutional investors, Community Development Entities (CDEs) and professional service providers to participate in a client's project. Additionally, we add value by ensuring our clients are receiving favorable terms that are within market. We will navigate our clients through the NMTC documentation process, managing all parties in the transaction, identify and mitigate key risks, and provide market context based on HGC’s experience in an effort to promote a quick financial closing.

With years of experience, we have the capabilities and expertise to take your business to the next level. At Hickory Grove Capital, we combine our insights and skills to transform your processes and strategies, and in turn, your company. We’re proud to help shape and improve how our clients structure and manage their business.

CAPITAL ADVISORY

Hickory Grove Capital provides advisory services to businesses needing assistance in securing debt for their growth and capital projects. The debt HGC secures is traditionally used as capital into New Markets Tax Credit financings, but also advises businesses in standalone debt financings. We work to determine the organizational goals, the financial health and overall direction of the company.  We package the financials and growth plan, identify potential sources of funding and/or financial tools to pursue and present the package for consideration. We match our client’s capital needs with our robust lender network across the country, many of which are familiar with lending into NMTC deals including traditional banks, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), Certified Development Companies and other community based lenders. We help clients manage their institutional financing that will set their companies up for growth and are well positioned to take advantage of various tax credit financings now and in the future.


Looking to develop your business but not sure where to turn? Let us guide you. Any organization can move forward with small incremental changes, but building for the future in today’s rapidly evolving environment means taking bold chances and making insightful decisions.
